Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: The Grateful Dead vs. Led Zeppelin

I listened to the album from the Song Remains the Same for a few years before I saw the actual movie. I was shocked by the amount of overdubbing that had occurred...not that the Dead were much different as far as that goes, but I left the theater thinking "these guys suck", and I was still a Zeppelin head at the time.

The first time I dosed was the last time I really listened to Zep. Not pleasing tripping music at all. And once I started furthur down that road I was not going to be turning back. I experimented with psychedelics for several years before I saw my first Dead I was more than ready for it...and it was the most pleasing sound I had ever heard.

For me Grateful Dead and Led Zeppelin were the opposite ends of the social musical spectrum as far as 60's rock goes. One was violent and disrespectful the other was gracious and kind.

The childlike cheesy satanic BS didn't help.
